Ratha Saptami Importance

Radhasapthami is an auspicious festival celebrated by Hindus, and it is dedicated to Lord Suryanarayana.

Ratha Saptami is the seventh day of Shukla Paksha of the Hindu month ‘Magh’. Magha Sukla Paksha Saptami is known as Ratha Saptami & is considered as the most auspicious day to worship Lord Surya. Sun is the celestial body who is responsible for the great event Ratha Saptami. On the day of Makar Sankranti, Sun enters Capricorn and also starts his journey toward North which is known as Uttrayana.  It is also believed that Surya Deva started illuminating the whole world on the Saptami Tithi and hence it is also known as “Surya Jayanti”. All the names of the Ratha Saptami have some unique significance. The name Ratha Sapthami is the symbol of Lord Sun’s Chariot on which he starts his journey of the vernal equinox, whereas Surya Jayanti marks the birthday of Sun on this day.
